Dutch Parliamentarians upset by Turkish List of Gülen Supporters

Various Dutch parliamentarians were upset about the publication of a list of Gülen supporters in the Netherlands by the Turkish state press office Anadolu Ajansi (AA). Sjoerd Sjoerdsma of D66 said that it was unacceptable that Erdogan continues to inflame controversies in the Netherlands. Marit Maij of the Labor Party said that it is unacceptable that a foreign government calls Dutch citizens not to do business with a whole list of schools, businesses and persons. (Comment: the Dutch government has supported with hundreds of millions of Euro’s over the years various Dutch NGO’s who promote the boycott of Israel. Both D66 and the Labor Party recently opposed a parliamentary motion to stop this practice.)
